“Cooks in the Field” Spotlight: Joy Martin, Urban Foodie

By

Joy Martin

In our “Cooks in the Field” search for an Urban Foodie, a connoisseur of food trends and fusion cuisine, we were lucky to find Joy Martin. She won us over with her Larb (Laotian Minced Meat Lettuce Cups) recipe.

Joy is the creator of Braisen Woman, a vegan recipe blog for foodies of all dietary descriptions. She fell in love with cooking when she transitioned from “meat-loving-midwesterner” to “passionate vegetarian” and realized she had NO IDEA what to make for herself. Cookbooks were purchased, recipes were made, and a love of plant-based foods was born. Seven years later, Joy is a cook, recipe developer, and blogger dedicated to bringing exceptional vegan food into as many homes and kitchens as possible. She lives in Seattle, WA with her boyfriend (Daniel), her chihuahua-terrier mutt (Linus), and the coolest cat ever (Leon).

Stay tuned in the months ahead to see what other tasty recipes come out of Joy’s kitchen!

A quote from Joy, our Urban Foodie:

“[It is] my belief that high-quality, inventive, flavorful cuisine and “vegan food” are not mutually exclusive. I love translating food trends and de-mystifying veganism through accessible, exceptionally delicious vegan recipes with strong flavor profiles and global influences. From street food, to local ingredients, to modern reinventions of time-worn classics, I bring the pulse of the foodie universe into the kitchens of home cooks everywhere.”

Hello:
I am lactose intolerant, gluten intolerant person who is always at odds to prepare a good meal for myself as I can't eat eggs either. I got important information from you here and today I will make a stop at Food Fantasies where your products are sold. I have to control my cholesterol and therefore I can't eat meat. I dislike fish and chicken intensely so I don't eat any meat actually. I prepare lentils, garbanzo beans and other beans for protein. I came across your site while searching for vegan recipes and I am happy to have found you. My main problem is breakfast. I only take a small cup of coffee in the morning with a little fruit. I can't eat raw fiber, vegetables have to be cooked so I can't eat salads. My diet is very limited and I eat little during the day but I need to eat to survive and a vegan diet with protein and some calories serves me very well. So, I don't drink dairy, don't eat eggs, fish or meat or chicken, I am gluten intolerant and fiber intolerant. I can eat certain fruits only, no acidic ones. Please write me with ideas, suggestions about other products you can think of to help me live. Thank you so much.

Hi Juliet, thanks for writing in. Although our products are vegan, GMO-free and Soy-free, they are not gluten-free. Wheat protein is one of our main ingredients. I wish you the best of luck in finding the best foods to fit your diet!
